    November 28, 2013 - Saturated purple color. Minty, tobacco leaf, vanilla, sweet currant and cheese rind. Velvety texture that comes initially sweet on the front end and followed by charred meat, cocoa powder, black fruits and some unresolved tannins. Focused structure and nice length.

    November 26, 2013 - PnP w/5 min decant and 30 min glass time. Clear, w/very minor sediment, deep dark purple color. No brick edge. Very nice and proper Cab nose. This wine shows much better than it's price point. Perfect drinking window. Great balance. Med body, bold Cab fruit, integrated, nice juicy finish w/soft tannins. I have always liked this producers for it's QPR. Nothing off. $21

    October 10, 2013 - Dark and syrupy. This is a very concentrated bottle. It has some complexity. Good QPR but wish it had more. I like the blueberry and vanilla undertones. Four more bottles to go. No rush here.

    November 10, 2012 - Big full on cab, lot of dark fruit. A little too unsubtle for me, but particularly liked a hint of liquorice in the mix.
